Stroud Region Summer Recreation
We are pleased to announce that we plan to open Dansbury Pool in East Stroudsburg this summer, with a goal of opening for July 4th weekend (as long as Monroe County is in “green phase” or better at that time). Due to constraints from virus mitigation and maintenance considerations, the Stroudsburg Borough Pool will not be open this summer.
Like in so many aspects of our lives, summer at the pool will be a little different this year. Our goal is to provide as many community members as possible the opportunity to utilize the pool while maintaining appropriate social distancing and sanitization measures. Please note that “season passes” will not be available for purchase this year. We will have another update soon with an official opening date and modified hours & procedures for Dansbury Pool.
